Context
The Sacrifice Averted

11And the angel of the LORD called to him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I. 12And he said, Lay not your hand on the lad, neither do you any thing to him: for now I know that you fear God, seeing you have not withheld your son, your only son from me. 13And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son. 14And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen. 15And the angel of the LORD called to Abraham out of heaven the second time, 16And said, By myself have I sworn, said the LORD, for because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son: 17That in blessing I will bless you, and in multiplying I will multiply your seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is on the sea shore; and your seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; 18And in your seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because you have obeyed my voice. 19So Abraham returned to his young men, and they rose up and went together to Beersheba; and Abraham dwelled at Beersheba.
